A visit to Toby’s house a few hours before my flight to America was definitely a good decision, a stressful kind of good decision. Continue reading
This Arizona flavored Mitsubishi Lancer stuck out like a lost tourist in a crowd, I had to check it out!
The paint was certainly flashy but nothing on this car aside from that was crazy. I liked how the fenders weren’t rolled and the owner opted for tuck instead of perfect fitment like most of the people had. Simple touches of some hand painted sakura flowers on the rear and the emblem delete made this Mitsu a sleek little number.
So far living in Japan for around 4 months I have only had Arizona twice. And since this guy didn’t have US military plate I assumed he/she was Japanese. So the interest in Arizona must have been unique. I wonder where he gets all of it, maybe a direct import from a distributor or from a friend on one of the bases.
What ever the deal was, he left some bottles out the back of his car which was really tempting. I was surprised they sat there for the whole duration of my visit. If it was America I’m sure they would have been taken. With out a doubt.
*As a side note, I recently found out that the HUB; a British chain Pub in Japan carries Arizona Tea. Might go stock up on a few one day.
Hope everyone is having a good day/night.
I had plans to head out to Fuji for a drift event this Sunday but because of the rain a joint decision was made to save money and just spend the day safely in town. So instead of going to Fuji, I called Park and asked him if he wanted to go to the MoonEyes meet. Even though the weather was not its best we took our chances and headed out. The rain proved to be a bit of a nuisance but we managed to see a few cool cars.
This Skyline was pretty unique!
